How to Add Light to Your Space with Mirrors

Do you have a dark space in your home that you’re looking to lighten up? Glass mirrors in Houston offer plenty of design options for bringing light to your cramped or dim space. Read on for some tips on adding light to any room using glass mirrors.

Choose the Right Location

When adding light to a room using beveled glass mirrors, consider the space’s current light sources. For a large room that needs additional warmth, arrange glass mirrors near—but not in front of—the room’s light source. For example, rooms that are illuminated with wall sconces can be given more light by hanging a mirror underneath each sconce. For a smaller room, try hanging a mirror on the wall opposite the window. This can give the illusion of a second window, bringing in additional light.

Consider Size

The larger a beveled glass mirror is, the more light it will bring into your space. However, that doesn’t mean you should cover your wall corner-to-corner with a single mirror. You can also arrange several smaller mirrors together to bring in additional light while adding a decorative touch.

Go Frameless

In general, large, heavy frames appear to trap light and diminish your mirror’s effectiveness when it comes to brightening up the room. Choose a thin frame that is similar in color to the wall, or even go frameless. Beveled glass mirrors are a great frameless option for lightening up a room while giving it a glamorous look.

Think Off the Wall

A beveled wall mirror is great for reflecting light, but it’s not the only option you have available. Rather than hanging all of your glass mirrors on the wall, you can choose other locations for your reflective glass accents. For example, play with lining the back of a bookshelf with glass mirrors. If you don’t have much wall space in general, purchase a wardrobe or table that consists of reflective glass. You can even find reflective accessories like mirrored coasters, vases, or candle holders to reflect light in your room.
